I'll Show you Love in This World Poem by Whitney Albright


Come, let me show you my home
Child, oh so greatful one
From the abandoned roads you roam
Child, oh so greatful one
Your ribs prove your hunger so
Your bare feet show your chill
The cuts and bruises show your woe
I'll help you, oh, yes I will
Come let me hold you close by
Draw me close to your beaten image now
No, you aren't going to die
Come let me help you somehow
This world you've seen isn't so caring
You've wandered upon its fragile ground
Stealing your hopes to them is daring
Don't be so down, don't be so down
Now you must come, let me show you my home
Child, oh so greatful one
From the abandoned roads you've roamed
Child, oh so greatful one
